Sounds like dirt in the idle jet.I would get a carb rebuild kit and a can of carb cleaner and blast out every hole inside the carb.(Use safety glasses)Also make sure the float level is set perfectly to factory specs.Then if you have compressed air blow the carb out with that. Look inside the little idle jet and main jet holes and be sure nothing is blocking them. Install a good inline fuel filter before you start the bike.
Maybe even drain the tank to be sure most dirt is gone from tank.

Check your idle control motor operation. Try tapping on it with a malet or something. If that makes it idle fine. Replace idle control motor. Also check for large vacuum leaks.

What wron g with a 1987 chevy celebrity that wont idle

There are a lot of factors that can cause a poor/no idle problem. I'm guessing the 2.8 lt motor? One common problem on this motor was a bad intake manifold gasket causing an internal vacuum leak supplying the vehicle with unmetered air. The vehicle would idle very poorly and stall. Another problem could be with the IAC ( Idle air control) motor that controls idle. It could be sticky/defective and will not properly control idle. A dirty throttle plate can also cause idle problems as it upsets minimum airflow. You can start by inspecting the throttle plate for dirty/coking and clean with carb spray as necessary. You can also try removing and cleaning the IAC motor pintle or replacing the motor with a known good oneto see if it corrects the problem

Hi You need to check your Idle air control motor. this unit works witht the computer to regulate the fresh air to the motor. try to unplug a vacume hose on top of the throtle body when your problem occurs, if the motor idles higher but seams to be ok and not stalling then you have found the problem

Saturn idle

If it doesn't how would it idle? What saturn is it? Does the engine turn over? No sense in going any further until the starter motor can turn the engine over.

How to set idle for 1984 mustang 3.8L, 6cyl

Technically the idle speed is not adjustable. The computer controls idle speed with the idle speed control motor.
Base idle is around 500 RPM with normal idle in park at 800.

My motor wont idle

The IAC or idle air control motor controls your idle and may need replaced. Also see if your air filter is dirty. How long since a tune up or fuel filter could be a cause also.
